This was one of those long days, and not one that will never end. No, this was one busy day.
It started out bad … Two of our guys in the East coast were going to be out, so being the responsible one, I said I can come in a little earlier. That means a 5 am commute … Yeehaa. My back tire has a slow leak, and I didn’t feel like switching bikes, or God forbid that I would drive in. So I just pump it up all the way.
Then, I find out I have to be in a Maintenance Window for troubleshooting for a customer (and I have no history behind this case at all). Oh, I also had a handover case, as well as a big customer from a case that I own that I needed follow up on. All this happening from 6-11 am.
Team Meeting is at 11 am, so I went right into that, after finishing up my Maintenance Window call.
Then, lunch … Well, I ate lunch while working another call.
Then, IT is really cracking down on disk quota abusers, and I’m one of them. I find out I’m using 65 GB out of a 5 GB disk quota. After much searching, I finally find out I had an archive folder that was 60 GB in length. Maybe that will resolve my login access problems, but no …. Remember, this is the long day.
Then, I finally write a handover of my case for follow up after my shift is over. I do the write up, pack everything up, then suddenly realize I didn’t update the bug. Turns out no big was filed, so I had to go create that. Finally, get to leave and by this time it’s 4 pm.
I go retrieve my bike, and remember how I had that slow leak? Well it’s flat now. Ok, now to change the tube, and my tire iron breaks. Oh I just want to be home now.
Luckily I found the culprit that caused the leak … A tiny piece of wire that got lodged in the wheel.
I was not in the mood for an extended after work ride, so just took the quickest way back home.
That was one long day!!!
